The Dreaded Home Inspection!


If you are buying or selling a home in Salt Lake, Holladay, Draper, Sandy or South Jordan, prevent the headache for both buyers and sellers by ordering a home inspection!



If you are buying a home, an inspection could reveal problems you never would've noticed.  An inspection can require the seller to fix what needs fixing before you buy the home.  You could also find issues that make you decide not to buy.  If you're a seller, an inspection can help you find problems before you put the house on the market, letting you make the repairs without wrangling over the cost with a potential buyer. 

A typical home inspection covers all major mechanical systems, structural integrity, cosmetic features and other aspects of the house.  This includes the following:

*  Heating and cooling systems
*  Electrical
*  Plumbing
*  Interior and exteriors
*  Garages
*  Baths
*  Kitchen, which includes cabinets, counters, sink, faucets, garbage disposals and other 
    built-in appliances
*  Insects
*  Exterior walls
*  Parapets, trim
*  Chimney
*  Foundation
*  Slabs
*  Basement and crawl space
*  Examination of the attic and roof to assess the insulation, ventilation, framing, roof surface, flashing, penetrations, drainage, overhangs, gutters and downspouts

The task should take two to four hours or more, depending on the complexity of the job.  Costs range from $300 to $800 for typical homes, but they can go higher depending on the age and type of structure.
